Nowaday, most of the low-rise concrete structures which have less than five stories were built before the intensified seismic code was established 2005. According to the fact that our country is not a safety zone ay more, studies are need to reinforce the seismic performance of that structures. The basic frame of low-rise structure are consist of beams and columns with partition walls, therefore that are very weak about secondary wave of earthquake because of the high stiffness. The partition wall are consist of open channel for sunlight or ventilation and intermediate wall. The intermediate walls will enhance the stiffness of columns, but will cause shear failure with short column effects because of the reduced effective depth. But we don`t have studies and adequate design code for partition wall effects, therefore some more studies are need for these facts.
